Here's a quick easy way to cook your grains and veggies together for a delicious one pot dish. I used grains I love and veggies, condiments, and with one flick of the rice cooker switch, made it fast and tasty.
Step 1: INGREDIENTS
- A Rice Cooker, Tri-color Quinoa (or just plain Quinoa), Long Grain Rice (like Basmati or Jasmine), some Kale, a carrot, minced onion (dehydrated), garlic salt
Step 2: ADD Grains
Add to rice cooker: 2 cups rice and 1 cup Quinoa
Step 3: WASH
Wash the rice and quinoa ( swish the grains around in the pot filled with water - you want to wash it so the water becomes less cloudy and more clear), drain, wash again and drain.
Step 4: ADD WATER
Add the appropriate amount of water for 3 cups of rice in the rice cooker. ALT suggestion: ***instead of just water, you could add veggie broth***
Step 5: CHOP VEGGIES
Peel the carrot and dice it. Wash the kale, remove the spine and chop it.
Step 6: ADD VEGGIES
Add the veggies to the grains already in the rice cooker.
Step 7: ADD onions, garlic salt
Add 3/4 tsp.- 1 1/2 tsp minced onions, add garlic salt to taste and stir.
Step 8: COOK
Put the cover on the rice cooker and flip the "on" switch
Step 9: DONE!
In about 45 minutes you will have a grain and veggie dish, steaming hot.
Step 10: SERVE
Serve it up... on the side, I served tempeh sticks and sliced avocado. YUM....
